Arsenal have recalled Spanish wing-back Hector Bellerin from his loan with the Hornets.

The 18-year-old made eight appearances for Watford during his time at Vicarage Road, the last of which came in the 1-0 victory against Birmingham City last Tuesday.

Bellerin originally joined the Hornets on a short-term loan in November. That expired at the start of January but Watford extended the deal until the end of the campaign.

However, the youngster has struggled for regular first team football in recent weeks and his appearance against Birmingham was his first in a month.

Bellerin is a Spanish youth international who joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011.

The quick and attacking full back made his Gunners first team debut in September against West Bromwich Albion in the League Cup.
